Halloween Book of Magic

Introduction: Halloween Book of Magic

I L.O.V.E. how this book turned out for so many reasons! Mainly because I was trying to use supplies I already had and didn't know exactly where I was going with it. Now I have another Halloween prop to contribute to the Halloween Party!

Supplies you'll need:

Thrift Store Book * Brown Paper Bag * Mod Podge * Flat Marble * Magazine Eyes * Clear Glue * Hot Glue * Red Paint

What to do:

Add character to your book spine by adding layers of hot glue

Crinkle up the brown paper bag and tear it into pieces
Using Mod Podge, cover the book with the crinkled paper bag

Glue the front side of the magazine eye (or the flat side of the marble)
Attach the front side of the glued image to the flat side of the marble
Glue the marble eyes to the front of your book

Surround the marble eyes with crinkled brown paper bag to give them a more finished look
To create the bloody tears, drip layers of hot glue (blow on them to cool in between layers)
Paint the dried {hot} glue with red paint
